Comment 1 Timothy Davis 2008-07-28 00:49:33 EDT
yumex runs from command line "python /usr/share/yumex/yumex.py" but only as
normal user, when run as root the same error messages.
Comment 2 Timothy Davis 2008-07-28 05:01:20 EDT
Created symlink from /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules/libcanberra-gtk-module.so to
/usr/lib/ and reran yumex from menu. Successfully uninstalled kdegames.
Comment 3 Tim Lauridsen 2008-08-05 08:47:18 EDT
Can't reproduce this error.
try running 'xhost +' before running 'yumex &'
Comment 4 Timothy Davis 2008-08-09 23:56:10 EDT
After updating to yumex-2.0.4 and removing the symlink to libcanberra-gtk-modules it is working.
